of discussion about what to do with budget deficits, and properly so. social security has not been a drain on the deficits, but there is a lot of misinformation about it. a lot of proposals floating around about privatizing so that people, especially younger people, into the market instead of having a government social safety net. what about social security that covers not only the elderly, but also those with dependent children can also security as well? putting money into private accounts to be invested by people, that is not going to be helpful to the vast majority of people. knowing where people stand on social security is very important. i want to raise an issue related to the courts. lilly ledbetter was such an explicit example of how courts can matter. and there are projections. it is hard to know what the tenure will be of the nine justices there are on the court right now. many predict that over time and in the next several years, there'll be one, two, or perhaps more vacancies on the supreme court. every vacancy makes a difference, especially given so many 5-4 decisions. wh

trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history, can say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stopped funding in things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed the retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, senate, and governor's races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and at c-span.org. >> more campaign 2012 coverage next, to milwaukee, wisconsin. where friday the former governor tommy thompson faced off against u.s. congresswoman tammy baldwin, in their third and final debate for the senate seat left open by retiring senator herb kohl. it is a tossup. la
